Transcript for Food Costs for Citrus, Beef and Shrimp Are on the Rise But There Is Some Relief
Tonight rising food prices. Sticker shock at the grocery. For some items, four times the price we pay just a few months ago. When will this end? ABC's Linzie Janis breaks it down and shows us the surprise. Some foods are quietly getting cheaper. Reporter: Items once taken for granted are fast becoming Dell kacys. Like limes. Prices have quadrupled over the last couple months. Floods and a tree disease in Mexico turning these fruits into gold. Restaurant owners say they're getting squeezed. Prices have gone up a lot. It takes a hit on them. Reporter: These small fruits are becoming precious. People across the country having to improvise. Some of them using lemons, roughly have the price. And beef hasn't cost this much since 1987. Under the sea, it's shrimp. A disease limiting supply and driving up prices by more than 60% since last year. But there are bargains out there. Lobsters are actually dropping in price. Lettuce, too. It's 17% cheaper. Coffee, peanut butter and ice cream down as well. A small silver lining in a marketplace of rising prices. Linzie Janis ABC news, New York.
